DRW is a diversified trading firm with over 3 decades of experience bringing sophisticated technology and exceptional people together to operate in markets around the world.  We value autonomy and the ability to quickly pivot to capture opportunities, so we operate using our own capital and trading at our own risk. 

Headquartered in Chicago with offices throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Asia, we trade a variety of asset classes including Fixed Income, ETFs, Equities, FX, Commodities, and Energy across all major global markets. We have also leveraged our expertise and technology to expand into three non-traditional strategies: real estate, venture capital, and cryptoassets. 

We operate with respect, curiosity, and open minds. The people who thrive here share our belief that it’s not just what we do that matters–it's how we do it.  DRW is a place of high expectations, integrity, innovation, and a willingness to challenge consensus.  

We are seeking a Senior Software Engineer to join our Unified Platform (UP) team.  UP consolidates data and technologies into a comprehensive solution, accelerating time to market. Within UP, the Treasury team is responsible for building systems that efficiently allocate capital and facilitate centralized, optimal management of firm resources. We work from high-level requirements where programmers are expected to gain an intimate understanding of the business. We strive for an environment where developers have the autonomy to pursue business solutions without arbitrary management constraints. We are a group of polyglots and technologists always seeking to find the right tool for each problem. Broadly, the development teams at DRW believe in rapid deployment and feedback, automated testing, and cohesive, transparent, lightly-coupled service architectures.

You'll be right at home if:

  • You can work alone but prefer working as a team.
  • You are passionate about providing business impact through technology.
  • You are comfortable leading large, complex data projects end-to-end.
  • You thrive on innovation and constantly seek new, creative solutions to existing problems.
  • You care more about learning and problem-solving than being right.
  • You focus on reliability, scalability, and maintainability.
  • You enjoy design, modeling, and programming regardless of the language or platform.
  • You are excited to directly collaborate with subject-matter experts to build the best solution.

What you will be working on:

  • You'll be helping DRW manage capital efficiently by developing and maintaining simple and robust data pipelines written mostly in Ruby, Python, and Clojure that perform complex analysis on firm and market data.
  • You will architect and maintain highly resilient systems that sit in the critical path of operations.
  • You'll build deep domain expertise as you work on problems that touch a variety of asset classes and trading concepts.
  • You'll find innovative ways to integrate disparate technologies and provide valuable insights to the business.
  • You'll enable the communication mechanism for that data whether it be alerting, dashboards, ad-hoc querying, or complex data visualization.
  • You'll work closely with your customers inside the firm to bring reliable, concrete, and introspect-able numbers to support critical firm operations.
